2 new CB rumours and Salah’s Ballon d’Or bid – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are straight back into preparation mode after another weekend win, as we face Everton in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday night. Transfer rumours today, too!


Reds linked with Barcelona defender and Gomez rumours start

There’s barely a transfer window goes by when a surprise Liverpool name is linked with an exit, usually because they’ve gone through one of those spells when they are out of the team.

For Joe Gomez that has been because he has been recovering from injury and then sidelined again – but the media have him heading out this winter regardless. Apparently Aston Villa want him – didn’t take long for the Steven Gerrard links to become transfer related, did it?!

In addition, we’re among the reportedly interested parties scouting Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo.

The Uruguayan has been largely excellent in a rather shabby team, combining great athleticism with fine ability on the ball this term. Still raw and in and out the side at times, but the best they’ve got – and his contract is running down. Still unlikely, but an approving link nonetheless.

  • Luka Modric wants to move to Man United, which should help them renew the team and add high-energy pressing to the attack
  • Raheem Sterling is wanted by Arsenal. Are they not bored of players turning them down yet? You’re not there, lads!
  • Ferran Torres will cost Barcelona €70m. They don’t even have money to register free transfers. What a fun rumour.
